    Beware that they (E07s) feel better and last longer at lower psi; in my experience 26/32psi f/r is the best compromise for all"around riding good luck.

    I haven't had any real experience with them on wet asphalt yet. The Heidenau K60's which I liked were horrific on wet asphalt. Do you have any experience that I would be interested in knowing about? I have always loved the TKC80's. Fantastic tire under all conditions. Only problem with them is I would go through three or four rear tires and 2 or 3 fronts if I took them on this trip.

    I will pay attention to the tire pressure. I have been running them around 26/32 and actually thought I was running them a little low. They behave very well for me on gravel and dirt on those roads. I was more concerned on asphalt, thinking they might wear faster or unevenly?

    They're (originals) much better in cold/wet than K60.. here is my experience with them:
